As technology progressed, humans devised smartwatches to match modern-day smartphones.
But what if we tell you there’s more innovation left on this planet? Yes, according to News18, a prototype wristband will now help people monitor their emotions.
The wristbadn works the help of a skin response sensor, which allows the wristband to change colour, shape, size and temperature depending on what emotion the user is experiencing.
If you are already impressed, calm down, only the prototype has been revealed so far.
Apart from the presentation, a test was conducted on the participants, who were asked to wear the prototypes for a duration of 8 to 16 hours.
The feeling of happiness, sadness, grief, anger and even fear were used to activate the device.
Explaining the prototype, co-author Muhammad Umair from Lancaster University in Britain told News18:
Knowing our emotions and how we can control them are complex skills that many people find it difficult to master. We wanted to create low-cost, simple prototypes to support understanding and engagement with real-time changes in arousal.
Later, he concluded by saying:
One of the most striking findings was that the devices helped participants started to identify emotional responses which they had been unable to beforehand, even after only two days.
Even though we can’t say when this wristband will available in the market, it might be worth the wait.
